Did you know that our network—Middle East Television (METV)—has the exclusive rights to broadcast the NFL AND the Super Bowl? Well, I’ve just pre-empted the halftime show with a 20 minute evangelistic outreach! I want YOU to see it too!

>> What if I told you half time
is much more than just a pause?

That it’s more
than just a reset.

But a realm where the truth
isn’t what it seems.

>> A realm where the truth
becomes reality.

>> A line is drawn in the sand.

>> The moment
everyone’s been waiting for.

>> This is the main event.

>> Count the cost.
Count the cost.

>> I had no choice.
Many of you have a choice.

As a young boy, I had a goal.

My goal was to become
a millionaire before I was 30.

Out of the blue, I had a thought.
It was like a question, really.

And a young kid shouldn’t have
a question like this.

What happens when you die?

And I thought, well, you no
longer can exist if you die.

And then I thought, what would it
be like if I ceased to exist?

And the more I thought about it,
the more objectionable it became.

So I did
the only intelligent thing.

I blocked it from my mind
for many, many years.

So I graduated college.

Blinked my eyes a few times,
I got married.

Blinked my eyes a few more times,
I had a daughter.

Blinked my eyes a few more times,
and I wasn’t happy.

I didn’t know what
would bring me happiness,

but I just wasn’t happy.

And so I did something
I’m not proud of.

I left my wife,
I left my daughter,

I left my job, and I went
searching for happiness.

And, you know, it’s a pretty
big world out there,

if you’re looking for something

and you don’t even know
what you’re looking for.

I’d had a good job at the time.

I was in investments, and one of
my salesmen came to me and said,

Sid, a friend of mine
just took a meditation course

and he can do
amazing things with his mind.

I said, well, what can he do?

He could get information
from the invisible world.

And I thought,
oh, I was a stockbroker.

If I knew what’s going to happen
in the stock market,

I could make $1 million,
and then I would be happy.

I took this course,
this New Age meditation course,

and I got more than what
these people told me I could do.

I knew things
in the invisible world.

But then the power
started growing.

I knew more and more and more,

and I got happier
and happier and happier.

And so I took advanced courses,

and I got into something
called Astro Projection.

You know, that’s where
your spirit leaves your body.

I know it sounds kind of spooky,
but this is true.

And and then someone said to me,
you know, Sid,

once you break into that realm,
your spirit

goes for a little walk every time
you go to sleep at night.

And then I began to think,
what would happen

if this happens to me?

And they say,
it happens every night now,

and I don’t make it back
in time to my body.

I got to the point
I didn’t want to go to sleep,

because I was afraid

this horrible thing
would happen to me,

and I went so long without sleep,
and finally I was exhausted

and I said,
look, I don’t want to die,

but life is too hard.
I’m going to sleep.

And if I don’t wake up,
I don’t wake up.

I have no choice.

And I went to sleep.
The most fearful individual,

the most fearful night
of my life.

And when I woke up, there was
something that transpired

that I had no paradigm for.

I had no, no. It wasn’t even
in my realm of imagination.

There was a presence in my room.

This presence was the most
peaceful presence

I’d ever experienced.

It was like I went from darkness
to light instantly.

I was so peaceful,
that if you’d said, Sid,

I’ll give you that million
dollars you wanted as a kid.

If you don’t have that peace,
I’ll say money can’t buy this.

Well, you and I know
that the most important things

in life, money can’t buy.
Can’t buy a good marriage.

It can’t buy a good relationship
with your family.

It can’t buy good health.
It can’t buy peace.

Shalom peace.
Peace in your heart.

I was raised in a traditional
Jewish home.

We weren’t that traditional
in home,

but we went to what’s known
as a traditional synagogue.

I was very proud of being a Jew.

I was very comfortable
of being Jewish,

but it wasn’t the religious side

that made me comfortable
being Jewish.

It was you’re born a Jew
and you die a Jew.

That’s what made me comfortable.

I was very comfortable
with that until age 13.

At 13, I had my bar mitzvah.

I became a man,
and I became a man.

I wasn’t that interested in going
to synagogue, but I still went.

And the reason that I went
was because I loved my parents

and I wanted to honor them.

And when I found out that a lot
of the tradition I believed

in was in contradiction
to the words of the living God,

I only had two choices between
religion and tradition,

and truth.
What is truth?

And so I had bumped into
some friends that said to me,

Sid, you know
your own Jewish scriptures

say that Jesus
is your Messiah.

There’s only one God
for the whole world,

the God of Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob.

And there’s only one Messiah for
the whole world, the Jew Jesus.

And I say, well, we Jews
don’t believe in the Messiah.

I didn’t know that. We Jews,

of course we believe
in a messiah.

I just had never heard
any talk about Messiah.

But I figured that if
the Christians have Jesus,

we Jews have Moses.
And so I gave it no thought.

But then he said,
in your own Jewish scriptures,

God describes the Messiah.

And so I started
reading the Tanakh

to find the truth
about the Messiah.

I mean, I didn’t even know
why I would need a Messiah,

and evidently we Jewish people
always needed a sacrifice

to cover up our sins,

and we would take
unblemished lambs

and unblemished animals
and sacrifice them in the temple.

Because the Torah said,
without the shedding of blood,

there is no forgiveness of sin.

And so when the temple
was destroyed,

we couldn’t have the animal
sacrifices, so we were stuck.

Around the year 70 AD,

and no Jew could have
the blood of atonement.

And without
the blood of atonement,

there’s no forgiveness of sin.

And no Jew,
according to the Torah,

could have
their sins forgiven,

unless what the Christian
said to me is true.

But I want to see what my own
Jewish scriptures had to say.

And so I found out this Messiah
would live a sinless life.

This is all in Torah.

That most Jewish people
wouldn’t believe in him.

Few would believe
the report of the prophets.

That’s what it actually
says in Isaiah 53.

I found out he’d be born
in only one city

in all of the world, Bethlehem.

And there were five Bethlehem’s
at the time he was born.

But then it says in Micah,

Bethlehem of Judea,
he would be born.

And that’s exactly
where he was born.

It said his whole genealogy,
and his whole genealogy

was the same
as the Messiah of Israel, Jesus.

I remember going to
my Orthodox Jewish father

and I said, dad, let me read
Isaiah chapter 53 to you.

Tell me who this prophet
is talking about.

And so I started reading
the 53rd chapter

to my Orthodox Jewish father,

and he said, stop.
I said, why?

He said, you’re reading
from a Christian Bible.

I said, no, dad,
this is the Tanakh

that our Orthodox rabbi
gave me,

and I showed it to him.
It was even inscribed to me.

And he said I only
had two choices.

Either Jesus was the Messiah
or the one he came up with.

He said, I always thought

there was something wrong
with the rabbi.

Hard to believe,
but that’s what he said to me

and then dismissed
that whole topic.

If we don’t have an absolute,

then whatever you want
to believe is fine.

And in Judaism,
we think as long as you believe

what your fathers believed,
then, that’s tradition.

You know, it just evolves.

So for centuries,
multiple centuries,

and all this tradition,

the Messiah of Israel was asked
a question, that same question.

And he says your tradition
has made void the word of God.

The Messiah of Israel
came into my bedroom

that night
when I went to sleep.

So fearful, I didn’t want
to live that way anymore.

And when he came,
his peace came with him.

And he said to me,
I heard the audible voice of God

said to me at that time,
I hate divorce.

I didn’t realize he was quoting

from one of our own
Jewish prophets,

in which in Malachi God
says, I hate divorce.

The same voice said to me,
return to your wife and daughter.

And I said, yes, sir.
But I have to tell you,

I didn’t even know as a Jew,
I could know God.

I knew Abraham and Moses.
They knew God.

But I didn’t know any Jews
that knew God.

Am I meshuggah?
No, because guess what?

I read in the Torah the Messiah
would do signs and wonders.

I remember talking to
an Orthodox rabbi about Yeshua,

and he said, after I finished
talking to him

and telling him
all my God experiences

and all the prophecies

that proved conclusively
irrefutable proof

that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah.
He said, it’s too late for you.

Oh, thank God,
it’s too late for me

to be blocked
from knowing the truth.

It’s too late for me to be
blocked from being set free.

No, it’s too late for you.

Because I’ve already know –
I already know the truth.

I’m already set free.
I thought for myself.

I wish they’d all, Israel.

I’m not saying all Israel
should believe in Jesus.

I’m saying all Israel
should think for themselves.

Every Jewish person.
It’s the most important thing.

Why? I’ll tell you why.

If you don’t know
God before you die,

I guarantee you, you won’t
know God after you die.

But if you know God
before you die,

of course you’re going
to go to Heaven.

And I believe that only people
that are sinless

and according to the Torah,
there’s not one person sinless.

Not one. No, not one.
So how do we get there?

We don’t have
our animal sacrifice.

So how do we have our sins atoned
for so we can be in Heaven?

We can spend eternity with God.
There’s only one way.

The reason the temple was allowed
to be destroyed in 70 AD

is because 40 years earlier,

Yeshua fulfilled
all the prophecies

about the Jewish Messiah. Came
and lived as a man.

The Torah called him
Emmanuel, God with us.

And he lived a perfect life,
according to Isaiah chapter 53.

Totally perfect life,
the only one to ever do that.

The only sinless life
to ever exist.

And Isaiah chapter 53 says,
by his stripes, his wounding,

his death, blood flowed
and we were healed.

All we, like sheep,
have gone astray.

Everyone to his own way.
But the Lord has put upon him,

the Messiah,
the iniquity of us all.

And when I believed in him,
I knew that every bad thing

I’d ever done was remitted,
not just covered.

The blood of an animal
was just a temporary fix.

It covered our sins.

Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement.
It just covered our sins.

But Jeremiah chapter 31:31 says,
behold, the days come in which

I’ll make a new covenant
with the house of Israel,

the house of Judah,
a better covenant.

And this is the covenant
that I will make with them.

I, God,
will not just cover their sins.

I, God, will remit,
remove their sins.

As if they’ve
never been committed.

That’s why it’s called a new
covenant, a better covenant.

And I’ll tell you this.

There’s nothing I can do as a
human to have my sins removed.

I used to believe my good deeds
outnumbered my bad deeds.

If there is a place called
Heaven, I’ll end up there.

But if, if, if. How about,
I know, I know.

And when I said this prayer
originally, nothing happened

and I figured it didn’t take.

But then,
on the worst day of my life.

The worst day, which became
the best day of my life,

I prayed a two word prayer.
When I was going to sleep,

I didn’t care
whether I lived or died.

I said, Jesus, help!

And when I woke up, the presence
of God poured into me.

And I’m going to
make you a promise.

If you’ll open the door,
God will show up.

It may not be
the minute you pray,

but God will show up in a way
that no one can ever talk you

out of the fact that God is real.

Tell you this, that if you know
God, you have everything.

And if you have everything
and don’t know

God, you have nothing.

He’s knocking at the door
of your heart.

Just that one two-word prayer:
Yeshua, help.

Because once you know God,
you can’t be fearful of anything.

And I’ll tell you what.
In the situation that you’re in,

or I’ve been in
at certain times in my life,

what a difference
it makes to know: God is for me.

Not because someone says it,
but because I know it.

Just do what I did. Say a prayer.
I was desperate.

Don’t have to be desperate
to say a prayer.

But I knocked,
and the door opened.

I want you to knock with that
two-word prayer: Yeshua, help.

You don’t know
when your end will come.

Smart as you are,
as prosperous as you might be.

You don’t know
when your end will come.

It could be the next minute,
especially in Israel.

If you wait, and your end comes,
you have to stand before a holy

God with all the mistakes
you’ve made.

You say, hey, that sounds
too good to be true.

But it’s in our Torah.
When you read my story,

There Must Be Something More,

and you’ll get the free download,
you will see these scriptures

and be able to think
for yourself.

When you read these scriptures,
then look it up in your own

Tanakh, you’ll see that

God gave us more than enough
evidence to prove: one God.

His name: the God of Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob.

One Messiah: the Jew Yeshua.

You don’t know
when your end will come.
